Community Learning

The MOR Ph.D. program is based on the belief that preparing for a career in academia involves considerable participation, interaction and responsibility. You will:

  • Interact with faculty frequently and intensely, developing your knowledge and research skills and eventually getting published in top academic journals.
  • Hone your teaching skills through faculty instruction and as a teaching assistant (possibly teaching your own course). Be actively involved in our distinguished speaker series, brown-bag sessions, and special-topic groups.
